Marty Robbins was already a country star by 1959, but this album made him a pop star and household name. Robbins's rich, agile voice had as much in common with pop crooners as country singers, and his fluid delivery on these tales of the Old West helped him make the pop-country crossover. Despite the fact that they were unprecedentedly long for the period, "Big Iron" and "El Paso"—both penned by Robbins—were huge hits, unfolding dramatic narratives full of danger and romance. And Robbins' take on traditional tunes like "Billy the Kid" and "Utah Carol" made them fit perfectly into the mythic Western world he conjured up.
